Having a home built is an exciting time that will be filled with making many decisions that can affect your future enjoyment of the home. One of the things you will need to decide is whether or not to have a swimming pool installed during new home construction. Since custom swimming pools offer a great deal of enjoyment, as well as added value to the home, it is not a bad idea to move forward. So, should you have your pool installed at the same time as you build the house, or should you add it later? Here are some valid reasons for building custom swimming pools during the new home construction phase.
- Single mortgage- The mortgage for your new home will include the cost for the pool if you do it all at the same time. That saves you from dealing with a second loan later, which might have less satisfactory loan terms, like a higher interest rate or shorter repayment period, and thus a higher monthly payment.
- Easier installation- It can be challenging to have custom swimming pools installed after the home has been built because access to the backyard is more limited and difficult after all your landscaping and other features are installed.
- Potentially costs more- The more intense the installation, the higher the bid will be, so putting in a pool later could end up costing you more than doing it at the same time as the new home construction project.
- No disruption later- When your house is complete, you’ll want to enjoy it rather than deal with more construction disruption later to have the swimming pool installed.
